Godsday Orubebe, a former minister of Niger Delta affairs has been found guilty of false declaration of assets by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

Danladi Umar, chairman of the tribunal, delivered the judgment convicting Orubebe of the offence.

“I hereby seize, on behalf of the federal government, the property known as plot 2057. The prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt, and all evidence tendered are admitted,” Umar ruled.

Orubebe’s lawyer, Larry Izimoje, speaking to journalists after the proceedings said:

“This is beyond travesty of justice. I can say that this is a case of whether you like it or not, I must convict you. That’s what played out today. Thank goodness, this is not where it ends. The court of appeal is there, so we will definitely appeal against it.”

Orubebe was arraigned before the Tribunal for false declaration of assets. He was accused of not declaring the property in 2007.

Orubebe, during his trial, said that he had sold the property prior to the declaration of his assets, but according to documents presented in court, the property still bears his name.

    Buhari and his witch haunt. It’s amazing how nothing has been traced to amaechi and tinubu or the rest of his Hausa clan. Even the IG guy is basking in freedom yet every body who had stuff to do with gej is being harassed. May you and your family be haunted unfairly all your lives and may you never get away with any sin you commit or any mistake you make.

    It appears that the only thing APC had ready upon assuming office was a HIT-LIST.

    Buhari and Apc people, ndi ojoo.when did Orubebes trials started that he is already convicted? Meanwhile Saraki has not been convicted till now. All this administration has greatly achieved is harassing and convicting all Pdp members. I also saw on the news that Peter Odili is going to be tried for some fraud of many years ago. Bunch of wicked and unforgiving souls. Let’s see how long kama will take to strike and consume Buhari and Apc!
